Description

Number of admissions to non-psychiatric/non-obstetric hospitals in Scotland. Information presented is for patients treated as inpatients or day cases only. The year shown refers to the year of discharge from hospital.

During a spell in hospital a patient may be transferred between consultants or hospitals - this can generate more than one hospital record - in such cases a patient is counted only once if they have multiple mentions of a particular diagnosis during the same spell in hospital. However, if a patient has more than one spell in hospital in the year with a particular diagnosis, each spell is counted separately in the figures shown.
